Tours and Tickets by Indigo Divers – Albufeira Dive Centre
Tours from Indigo Divers – Albufeira Dive Centre tend to sell out - travelers recommend booking in advance!
The Discover Scuba Diving program we provide is a chance to try scuba diving with our very experienced staff in a small group for more comfort and fun on your holiday.
We start with a short DVD, then a full briefing on the equipment and skills you need to complete in the swimming pool to progress to the sea. We spend longer in the large pool than most DSD experiences to make sure you have more control and comfort with the equipment, then you will enjoy the sea dive more.
After successfully completing the pool training we then take a short boat journey to the dive site with a max on 2 people per Instructor for more safety and fun underwater on your dive. If you are a group then we will just provide extra Instructors.
You will need to fill in a medical form ( asthma, pregnant, medication...) can mean you need a medical from a doctor please review the form on our website or ask before booking.
Refunds are not given once you have started the experience.

In our centre we pride ourselves on personalising dive trips for the clients, we are a family run business catering not for the masses but the individuals. We take a max of 6 clients on the boat and have 2-3 guides / Instructors per boat to guide our trip. If you are a holiday diver just diving once a year we will spend extra time, helping assemble equipment, briefings and explaining anything about the local area. We protect the reefs and can show you the underwater life at it´s best during a relaxed dive. If you are experience we will buddy you with someone of the same level or ourselves or stay down longer for you to take photos or just get the most out of your days diving.

Had a great experience during my open water and advanced courses. Personnel was lovely. Boat trips and dives were good organised, and done with descent material.
